Lopez Lomong is carrying the flag of the United States in the opening ceremonies of the Olympics today.
He is a refugee from Sudan, one of the Lost Boys, who came to America in 2001 and settled in with a foster family in Central New York. His foster parents, Robert and Barbara Rogers, took in six boys from Sudan who had lost everything. This article about Lomong and his American family should raise a lump in your throat.
We are very proud to call this amazing guy one of ours!
